Be still my heart! How precious is that! Thanks for sharing! I've got a new grandbaby due next week, so I know how you feel to see that miracle of birth!

Dayum Anon S...I'm not ready for a grandhorse yet. I should have qualified...She was born at a lovely barn where my daughter rides. She's 14...no grandhorses yet...pahleeese.

;~P

Mama was smartly protective yet sweet and loving to us.Everyone has already been loving on the filly...and Mama is fine. Good Mama.Great Mama. Tired Mama.

Too funny! Sorry I thought you were old enough to be a Grandmama! Because I am one I just figured that everyone is!

Love your blog! First thing I read every single day. You make me smile and I am a hard person to get to smile.

So beautiful... Does she smell like a puppy? Nothing smells better than horseflesh and a saddle to me, but I've never smelled a foal. Beautiful markings.

A Write Life said...

How absolutely charming. Beautiful baby.

Linda,

OMG!!!! The first thing I'm doing in the morning is showing Lucy these pictures. She is going to absolutely die! She rides horses and is in love with them.

One of my first childhood memories is watching a calf being born and getting up to walk. I can remember my Dad helping it straighten out its legs. I was probably 4 or 5 and I remember it like it was yesterday. Truly, an amazing experience.

And, your kindness abounds! I so appreciate your remarks on RHS. I really, really do.

Hope you have a great week.

It always amazes me how fragile something newborn seems (be it baby, foal, or shoot) and how relatively sturdy it is.

Gorgeous pics of little Lilo; thanks for sharing!
